I've been experimenting with a slight change in how some of our bundles are
structured, and it's looking promising so far,
so time for feedback...
The basic idea is that for every bundle "foo" that we have in the OS, we
auto-generate a bundle "foo-dev" which contains
1) All the OS content that was used to create what is in "foo" (e.g. the full
2) All the -dev content for the packages in foo itself (headers/.so files etc)
It's done such that if bundle "foo" includes (extends) bundle
"bar", "foo-dev" would include "bar-dev"
(this is to keep sizes/updates to this managable)
There are some logistical challenges to do this for ALL the bundles we have (in terms of
disk space etc)
so we may start with a smaller set of bundles to do this for.
So the question is if folks think that this is useful to have, and if there's
tweaks/etc we can do to make these
even more useful... Also if there's requests to do specific bundles before others
(given the logistics/diskspace issues
we need to work through).. please speak up.
